Big Lead, Big Win!
Rangers 5 Senators 2
After nine straight losing visits to Ottawa, New York tried a new approach, building a 4-0 lead and then hanging on for the win. I like it!
Daniel Girardi opened the scoring 3:37 into period one, Brendan Shanahan scored the first of his 2 goals a few minutes later; followed by a Jaromir Jagr power play goal a few minutes after that. 3 goals 11:40 into the game, they obviously came out with a purpose.
Shanny made it 4-0 (ppg) halfway through the 2nd, and that was a comfortable margin for Henrik Lundqvist, who stopped 31 of 33 shots. Blair Betts put the icing on the cake with a goal with 40 seconds left in the 3rd.
The Hurricanes come to visit MSGon Monday...
LET'S GO RANGERS!
